Elephant Rock, Salt Wells Road, Utah, USA
Utah

Located at the extreme northern end of the Great Salt Lake in Utah, this natural rock formation resembles an elephant.  The hole of the arch is about five to six feet tall (see the nearby fence posts for comparison).

The rock itself appears to be from the same Oquirrh Formation as the nearby Chinese Arch.
